Question about Acer AL1717 17" LCD Monitor
Friends, I tried to restart my PC after 6 months, initially it showed disk boot failure, then after few trials of power on/off it booted and worked for a day. But the next day onwards that method is not working on the contrary the screen(Acer 17"LCD)goes to white screen for few minutes then to black screen (initially starts with some horizontal lines) . I opened and reassured the tight connection of hard disk, then checked with friends monitor and its works fine. But not with my monitor. Above all I am feeling a mild shock while touching the PC casing, is there any connection? My question shows my ability, please do help me.
Try checking inside the computer for loose wiring near where the power supply box plugs into the motherboard, make sure that you turn the computer off and remove it from the outlet before opening it. While the computer is open, check all of the leads going into the motherboard are pushed in gently but firmly. Remove the RAM clean it with a soft paintbrush and then return them to there slots ensuring that they are seated correctly. Do the same with the graphics card and sound card if you have them in PCI slots or AGP slot returning them correctly into thier slots.
Put everything back together and before powering back on make sure that the power leads going into your PC and into your monitor have not been damaged in any way. Reboot your computer and try again. If you still get a shock or your computer does not boot properly then you may need to change the power supply box.
I hope this helps
